Analyze this...

For the next 28 weeks I have to attend therapy (it is a requirement at my school to graduate). I have been wanting therapy for a while but money is always tight, so I didn't start till I was 30 weeks away from graduation. My first session was last week, and I think it went well enough. I did this nervous smile the entire hour and well at some points it felt more like a facial tic than a smile. Nice. We mainly did the intake interview. So this week we finished the intake, going more into detail about my family. At the end of the session my therapist looks at me, looks down at her notes, looks at me again and says "Wow. I mean this is...Wow! Well at least we'll have a lot to work on." I mean don't get me wrong I know my family is crazy, but crazy enough to make a therapist speechless?!? This made me laugh the whole way home. I think I am going to enjoy being therapized.

Ouch.

I don't think I would take it that well.

Well family issues were my number one treatment goal, so it was just nice to realize there was a lot to work with (and she said it with a smile). Since I have to go for such a long time I am just glad she can make me laugh (whether she meant to or not). I think if she would have been so serious and down about it, I would have walked out of the session depressed.
